Impulse Control 1 and 2 Classes

About the Impulse Control Classes

Impulse Control 1 and 2

If you’ve taken classes with Fido before, you’ll take this class after completing Dog Basics or Canine Middle School. If you haven’t taken a class with us before, that’s okay too! This two-part class is for dogs of any age to work on building our skills for cues as well as environmental distractions. Help your dog find that fantastic focus, able to pay attention to you with even the most difficult distractions. Does it seem like your dog has the memory of a goldfish, lasting only a couple of seconds? Do you struggle on walks with keeping your dog away from food on the ground or keeping them from lunging to greet other people or dogs?

Even if your pup has some great skills in concentration and memory, this class can help build what they already have and create long-lasting habits. We will use established positive reinforcement techniques to build self-control and help your pup avoid temptations such as food on the ground (even hamburgers!), toys, chasing critters, jumping up, and pulling to greet other people or dogs. Your dog will learn that waiting for you to say it’s okay will provide huge rewards, and your bond will strengthen as a result. This class is for dogs of any skill and age, but dogs should know “sit” and “down” reliably. Reactivity to people or dogs is okay, please contact us with any questions! Even if your pup has some great skills in concentration and memory, this class can help build what they already have and create long-lasting habits. These classes fill quickly, so contact us today with any questions by emailing info@fidodogtraining.com or calling 248-607-9350 or Click Here to Read FIDO’s Frequently Asked Questions.

At Fido we begin Impulse Control 1 and 2 with a single class session for humans only.  This session is reserved as a dedicated meeting for Fido Trainers and their Students. Our Trainers discuss curriculum, explore expectations and set personal goals with each member of the class. Our Trainers want to know why each Student registered for the class and what they hope to take away from the training experience. They utilize this time to map out a strategy for success. In doing this we empower every member of the class to hit the ground running in the weeks to follow when the dogs are present and our plans are put to work.
